How do I block my screen when I take a call or make a call?

each time I take a call my ear touches the screen and either places my caller on hold or places them on speaker phone.  How do I block my screen when I take a call or make a call?

When you in a call and you put the headset next to your head their is a sensor that will black out the screen. If you try and make a call put your finger over near the LED notification area it should automatically black the screen out. if not then their is a issue with the sensor.

In addition to Teaboy1748's suggestion, do a search in BlackBerry World for an app called TalkLock.
